That the genius of General Ludndorf, defeated leader of the militaristic Germany, and now leader of the German anti-Semites, is equal to the genius of Goethe and Schiller, the leading spirits of Germany when it was a people of poets and philosophers, was the comparison made by Arthur Dinter, at the convention of the anti-semitic Voelische Partei which is now taking place at Weimer. Count Reventlow, well-known Geman writer and publicisitt, paying high tribute to Ludendorf, did not fail to attack the Jews and blame them for all the misfortune that befell Germany. General Ludendorff, after leaving the convention hall was accorded a tremendous ovation by the delegates who accompanied him to the special train. Many of the delegates formed into a noisy anti-semitic demonstration which caused disturbance.
